Westfields snatch victory in incident packed top of the table clash.
Westfields remain unbeaten in the Midland Football League Premier Division following an incident packed top of the League clash with Leicestershire based club Quorn. A crowd of 170 were entertained with some exciting and skilful football from both sides with Fields snatching a dramatic 89th minute winner.
Westfields goal was threatened as early as the 3rd minute when Quorn’s Jimmy Brooks powerful header cleared the bar from the first corner of the game. In the 6th Minute Craig Jones struck the Quorn post with an excellent drive from outside the box.
On 12 minutes Quorn goalkeeper, Ryan Thacker spectacularly tipped over a powerful Dan Polan shot for a corner. On 20 minutes Westfields survived a strong penalty claim when James Febery brought down a Quorn player inside the box. One minute later Quorn were awarded a penalty after Kane Khaki was adjudged to have fouled. Dominic Brennan took the penalty which was dramatically saved by Matt Gwynne diving full length to his right. Some two minutes later Gwynne saved well from Brennan who was closing in on goal.
Quorn took the lead on 27 minutes when the impressive Brennan placed an angled drive into the top left hand corner of Gwynne’s goal from the edge of the box. Two minutes later Westfields equalised. After some neat passing Dan Polan slipped a pass through the Quorn defence for Richard Greaves to latch on to and beat the keeper with ease. Westfields continued to pressurise Quorn with a Polan shot from the edge of the box beating the keeper and striking the right hand post.
On 38 minutes Dan Polan gave Westfields the lead. Sirdic Grant made a darting run through the Quorn defence and with a delightful pass played in Polan who beat the keeper with a powerful drive.
In a dramatic turn of events Quorn equalised some two minutes into the second half. James Febery dithered with the ball inside his own penalty area, was robbed of the ball, and a goal bound shot was stopped by Jamie Saunston on his own goal line who was then adjudged to have handled the ball. He was shown a red card. Nathan Dale stepped up to take the resultant penalty and made no mistake. Shortly after this Westfields had to re-group with a series of substitutions and the game entered a quieter period.
On 52 minutes Phil Glover headed a Ben Miller corner against the Quorn post. On 80 minutes a” last ditch” tackle from Jimmy Brooks prevented Craig Jones putting Westfields into the lead. Westfields snatched a dramatic winner on 89 minutes. After a period of Westfields pressure during which Thacker saved at the feet of Matt Reeve, Craig Jones delivered a perfect corner into the Quorn box resulting in Kane Khaki heading home with considerable power.
